Back in 2010 (was it really that long ago?) I ran an experimental poetry project I called Lithopoesis. The concept was based on the idea of ancient stele, stone tablets crammed with text. I started to produce oblong texts in which ideas, images, and words circulated. The Lithopoesis project is still on line here, so please feel free to explore it. One of the first lithopoemai was the one reproduced on this page. It was inspired by, and written to compliment, the painting of the same name by Scottish artist Ken Currie. In a way, the Lithopoesis experiment had things in common with some of my more recent poetry. That’s one reason why I decided to post a reprise of it here. The other reason was that someone sent me a postcard from the National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, of Ken Currie’s ‘Three Oncologists’, and that jogged my memory. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy today’s presentation. Sorry I have nothing new for you.

Hiatus (‘The Quiet-running Computer’)

‘The Quiet-running Computer’, ©Marie Marshall, 2018

I am giving you a blessed respite from my dreadful, tedious poetry. I need a rest. I may be back some time soon, maybe with more of my ‘Two hundred and seven words’ series, maybe with something different. But don’t hold your breath – I set aside novel-writing, and more than two years have gone by since then! As a (temporary, possibly) parting gift, here is a piece of my “impact art” entitled ‘The Quiet-running Computer’.

Just letting you know that this joint project – Doctor Who ‘parade throws’ for Mardi Gras in New Orleans – will continue very shortly. More ‘throws’ are being assembled as I write. So please reacquaint yourself with this project. The reblogged item here is one of the throws and its accompanying poem; there’s more where that came from.

“There is silver blue, sky blue and thunder blue. Every colour holds within it a soul, which makes me happy or repels me, and which acts as a stimulus. To a person who has no art in him, colours are colours, tones tones...and that is all. All their consequences for the human spirit, which range between heaven to hell, just go unnoticed.” Emil Nolde © Marie Marshall
